Please refer to our remote learning section on the website for information and support.
At Great Abington we work in partnership with you to create: curious, resilient, inquisitive, independent pupils who relish challenge. They need to engaged in all aspects of school life from the enriched curriculum to the extra curricular clubs. Please do come and talk to us if at any stage you are concerned about the outcomes being achieved by your child(ren). In partnership we can overcome any barriers that inhibit pupils learning and feeling safe within school. The two main areas we need your support with are: reading and developing curiosity.
